Notice of Special Interest (NOSI): Research in the Emergency Setting

Notice of Special Interest
Tuesday, September 8, 2020
Thursday, September 8, 2022
NOT-NS-20-005

Funding Opportunity Purpose

Purpose The purpose of this Notice is to announce an interest in research addressing patients with emergency medical conditions, including trauma. Background Over 145 million people are seen in emergency departments across the US. Emergency departments are the source of twelve million admissions, or 35% of all hospital admissions and 14% of all outpatient visits. This includes over 27 million children under the age of 15, 23 million adults over the age of 65 and over 42 million visits for injuries and major trauma. When they learn of a patient's new symptoms, primary care providers often use the emergency department to obtain rapid diagnostic tests and a treatment plan. Emergency Departments are the only component of the country's healthcare system that is accessible at any time of the day or night, and by law they provide treatment regardless of the ability to pay. Rapid assessment and treatment within the first minutes or hours after the onset of illness plays a major role in determining both the trajectory of recovery and future healthcare costs. Research in the emergency setting offers a unique opportunity to improve not only the treatment of acute life-threatening disorders, but also a spectrum of common disorders that encompass a considerable burden of illness and account for a major component of health care costs.

NIH Blueprint for Neuroscience Research: Functional Neural Circuits of Interoception (R01, Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

RFA
Wednesday, September 2, 2020
Saturday, December 19, 2020
R01
RFA-AT-21-003

Funding Opportunity Purpose

The NIH Blueprint for Neuroscience Research is a collaborative framework through which 14 NIH Institutes, Centers and Offices jointly support neuroscience related research, with the aim of accelerating discoveries and reducing the burden of nervous system disorders (for further information, see https://neuroscienceblueprint.nih.gov/). The goal of this FOA is to enhance our fundamental understanding of interoception with a specific focus on dissecting neural circuits connecting peripheral organs/tissues with the central nervous system via peripheral ganglia. For this FOA, interoception science includes studies of the processes by which an organism senses, interprets, integrates, and regulates signals originating from within itself. The FOA encourages projects that combine diverse expertise and use innovative approaches to delineate interoceptive mechanisms at the molecular, cellular, circuitry, functional, and/or behavioral levels. Outcomes of this research will lay a critical foundation for future translational and clinical research on interoception as well as its roles in nervous system disorders. Studies of interoceptive neural circuits exclusively within the central nervous system may consider seeking for BRAIN INITIATIVE funding opportunities.

Notice of Special Interest: Administrative Supplements for Connecting Pre-mortem Clinical Information with Post-Mortem Brain Analysis

Notice of Special Interest
Wednesday, August 26, 2020

NOT-NS-21-001

Funding Opportunity Purpose

The Lewy Body Dementias (LBD) are frequently misdiagnosed or underdiagnosed during life, and despite the development of diagnostic criteria at multiple expert consensus conferences, the gold standard for diagnosis remains post-mortem brain analysis. Improvement in diagnostic accuracy during life, and the development of good quality diagnostic biomarkers, would be greatly facilitated if comprehensive, longitudinal clinical and biological data obtained on patients during life were regularly linked with detailed post-mortem brain examination. In response to recommendations from the Alzheimer's Disease Related Dementias (ADRD) Summits convened by the NINDS in 2013, 2016, and 2019, longitudinal clinical data and biospecimens are being collected from patients with LBD and shared with the research community through the Parkinsons Disease Biomarker Program (PDBP). The PDBP is an NINDS-funded resource that collects standardized clinical data and biospecimens longitudinally on patients with Parkinson's Disease (PD) and PD-related disorders (including LBD) with the goal of accelerating the pace of biomarkers research. The PDBP currently has data and biospecimens on about 1900 subjects, some of whom have gone to autopsy, though relatively little post-mortem data on these subjects is available in PDBP at this time. This NOSI encourages researchers with extensive pre- and post-mortem data on patients with LBD to apply for supplemental funds to be used for the purpose of adding this data to the existing NINDSPDBP repository. Supplements may be requested by: Researchers who have previously contributed clinical and biospecimen data to the PDBP on patients with LBD while alive, and who wish to add the post-mortem autopsy data they have collected on the same patient(s) after their death.

RFA-NS-21-003

Funding Opportunity Purpose

The goal of the Frontotemporal Dementia (FTD) Centers Without Walls (CWOW) is to improve our understanding of the mechanisms underlying neurodegeneration in FTD through multi-disciplinary, team-based science to address a specific challenge or challenges in the field that could not be achieved through individual research projects.

Mechanisms of Selective Vulnerability in LBD and FTD (R01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

RFA
Thursday, August 13, 2020

R01
RFA-NS-21-007

Funding Opportunity Purpose

Accumulation of abnormal proteins such as alpha-synuclein or tau in the brains of patients with dementia tends to occur in specific brain structures (cells/circuits/regions), resulting in the unique clinical presentations that are characteristic of the different types of dementia. This funding opportunity announcement invites applications that seek to identify mechanisms responsible for this selective regional vulnerability to abnormal protein deposition in the brains of patients with Lewy Body Dementia or Frontotemporal Dementia.

Mechanisms of Pathological Spread of Abnormal Proteins in LBD and FTD (R01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

Funding Opportunity Purpose

This funding opportunity announcement invites research on the mechanism(s) by which abnormal proteins spread throughout the nervous systems of patients with Frontotemporal Dementia and/or Lewy Body Dementia. Applications that move beyond a focus on one mechanisms of spread to consider how spreading might proceed in the context of multiple proteinopathies, multiple cell/circuit types, and multiple pathways are of particular interest.
